  • I call bullshit. Anyone who has taken a statistics class knows that it isn't easy, and that statistics can be manipulated. The numbers we see here are the breakdown of recipients by race, nothing more. Yet we are led to believe that Caucasians receive more food stamps than African-Americans, when in reality that is not the case at all. In 2010 there were 65 million recipients of food stamps, and the US population was about 308 million. If you look at recipients broken down by race and compare th More..

  • Ok, whoever made this is dumb.

    First off, 41% isn't a majority.

    But more importantly, he forgot to take into account that while only 36% of foodstamp users are black, black people only make up 13% of the overall population. That makes a HUGE difference.

  • Put me in charge of Food Stamps. No cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho's, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.

    Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I'd do is to get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal legations. Then, we'll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine and document all tattoos and piercing's. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcoho More..

    • @ZANGADO I agree on everything but the voting part. All citizens should be able to vote no matter what. You can't forget that sometimes people loose their jobs. It may not be their own fault even. If you take away their voting rights, you are in fact taking away theese peoples chance to get their voice heard. About 10% of the total population.

      It would spell disaster when corporations and politicians start to use your voting system to win elections. And believe me they would!

      suicide somewhere between 200 and 250 years after being founded. The
      reason? The voters figured out they could vote themselves money from the treasury by electing people who promised to give them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them so the people that abuse the system can continue to be non contributing people to our society(dead beats).

People too often are too closed minded to even begin to understand the problems in this country. Wake up people!!! This country is going to shit now that Obama got elected again. Mark my words!!

  • When I see a picture of a trashy yard or porch,and someone tries to tell me that picture represents poor people,I right off the bat know that what ever this person is trying to convey is a bunch of crap,.
    first off,people that are poor,don't have to have a shitty yard with trash all around,.
    that is a representation of LAZY,I don't care how broke someone is,.
    their is no excuse to live in trash,that is pure laziness and attitude,.
    which usually means the person is broke because he is Lazy,..

  • There's more white people, so these statistics aren't accurate. Make it a ratio instead to have it more precise.

  • Probably blacks are singled out as welfare recipients because they only account for 13% of the population and receive 36% of benefits. In other words they are about 6 times more likely than a white person to be on assistance. You probably don't understand this however or you wouldn't have made your post.

  • I see all the comments here. I get the higher percentage of blacks thing. But should that dictate the face I put on welfare, or should the actual body count of welfare recipients dictate it? I don't know.

    Anyway, I like his message of unity. He's not pointing fingers and he's not being racist. He's saying we all need to work together. I'm totally down with that.

    • @Amusing I already took the higher percentage of blacks into account in my comment. No he doesn't paint the whole picture, but what he does paint is accurate.

      I haven't seen anyone give an argument for why the "face we put on foodstamps" should be dictated by "percentage of race" rather than "percentage of recipients". That, to me, is the critical question that is screaming to be answered in regard to this vid. If anyone wants to address it I'd love to read it.

  • Wow highsociety! Thanks for the info. I didn't realize blacks made up 36% of food stamp recipients. That is a huge percentage considering they only make up about 13% of the population according to the 2010 census. There are more whites on welfare because they are the majority of the population. Regardless of which group is the worst, welfare is financial dependency crack and needs to be curtailed severely. If you have a brain and 4 functioning limbs you shouldn't be on welfare.

  • Good vid, I also agree with his idea of unity. I am Mexican descendant but born a red blooded American in the great state of Virginia. I don't look at it as whites, blacks, mexicans... I look at it as Americans. Support our sovernty, or freedoms and rights and our ability to persue our own happiness. I know it all started with white settlers from Europe, but now I'm here too. I love my U.S.A. I know how lucky I am to be an American. Patriotizm is what is lacking here in America. So, please make More..

  • The idiot that made this video fails to mention one critical fact - proportion. White people make up roughly 75% of the population, blacks make up less than 13%, etc.. When you take this into account, you can see that non-whites consume a hugely disproportionate amount of government subsidies compared to whites. The "welfare queen" stereotype didn't just spring into existence on a whim.

  • Just wondering if it is ok for a black man to talk about race, but not for a white man...

    Also, 41% whites on food stamps compared to 36% African American on food stamps says something interesting. Considering that there are around 72.4% whites in America and around 12.6% blacks, that means there are about 5.75 white people to every 1 black person. I wasn't that great at math in school, but if my math is correct, this means blacks are 6.6 times more likely than whites to get food stamps.

  • Although I agree with the poster pointing out that most food stamp recipiants are white, it's foolish of him to question why there is a perception of mostly blacks being on foodstamps. His answer is answered one line down: 36% of food stamp recipients are African American, even though that ethnic group only makes up approximately 15% of the population.

    Thanks a question that should be asked.

  • Regardless to color - welfare is bad for the financial solvency of any country.

    The Great Society marked the downfall of work ethic for many.

    Yes, whites may make up 41%, and blacks just 36%, but one must ask - What percentage of blacks are receiving assistance?

    Human trash, regardless of color, continues to disproportionately breed, and their model continues to expand due to the breakdown of the family unit, lack of mentoring, lack of good education, lack of trade skill, and lack of work eth More..

  • The misleading part of this statistic is that blacks only make up 12% of the population of this nation, but absorb 36% of the food stamps. Whites make up 75% of the population and absorb 41% of the food stamps.

  • US Population:
    Whites = 73%
    Blacks = 12.4%

    That means there are a fucking lot of blacks on welfare.

    The same goes for black children being dumped into the system (parents ditch them). It's sad but it happens because of people like the convict that has 22 kids from different women (gets laid between jail time)
